Fruit in a beautiful dish always looks great on a kitchen counter or on an island. The marble backsplash in this kitchen by Kapito Muller Interiors is the perfect backdrop to show off the bright yellow of the lemons. You could create a similar look with oranges or limes.
“Fabric shades are like great art: They transform a space and its inhabitants“ says Kara Roberts Director of Merchandising for Smith & Noble the manufacturer of the Moroccan-style shades shown here. Flat Roman shades fold up at the top when fully raised and lie flat when lowered creating a low profile look that works with a wide range of fabrics and prints.
Here s a great example by designer Tiffany Brooks which how you can display family photos in your kitchen. If you d like to display photos keep them corralled in one area of your space to avoid creating a cluttered feeling on your countertops.
Art is definitely one of my go-to s for styling kitchen counters. You can casually lean a canvas against a wall like designer Caitlin Murray did here. You could also display a series of prints or paintings in the same frame if you like a more uniform look.
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric Prospect in Shadow“ says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces) barstools chairs and even Fido s bed.
Window treatments not only add softness and style but also control light protecting interior furnishings and materials from damaging UV rays. “Flat Roman fabric shades from Smith & Noble are available with a privacy lining that offers sun protection” says Kara Roberts Director of Merchandising for the company. Shown here is a Flat Roman Fabric Shade in Samara/Stone with privacy lining.
